Choose to be…

First posted here. #PixelStories #PixiePixelStories

 

Choose to be someone who will unite people and not divide them by casting conflicts, real or imagined.

Even the Bible talks about someone who stirs up trouble and separating friends: “A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.”

Choose to be someone who try not to be swayed by the opinions of other people easily. Be a critical thinker and learn to analyze words.

Choose to be someone who does not easily believe lies and hollow chatter. Question yourself if all you ever hear from other people are words like these and if you are learning anything from it.

Choose to be someone who does not judge and laugh at other people’s mistakes, eccentricities and life choices. Learn to discern if these affect your life because more often than not, it doesn’t. Soon, you will realize that the time you spent thinking, talking and dissecting these things that does not directly affect you was time wasted.

It doesn’t make you a better person, it makes you sound bitter instead.

Choose to be someone who shows understanding and maturity. Choose to be someone who can be trusted to keep secrets and not spread these without caution.

Choose to be that kind of person you’d like to be friends with.

Amongst the millions of Instagram photos with hashtags, there is one hashtag that I always use for my food photos: #platefuloffun I use it because I have a food blog called: http://platefuloffun.com

In this blog are very simple recipes that I have done at home. This needs to be updated because I have been remiss in documenting what I cook. So I guess I can call myself a food blogger because I cook and blog about food which I have personally prepared.

I have school day lunchbox Chronicles posts. This is a documentation of the packed lunch I prepare for my children.

Skinny Dipping ebook

Last week’s book was Connie Brockway’s “Skinny Dipping”. It was a fun read with unconventional and eccentric lead characters in wonderful setting in Fowl Lake, Minnesota. I love Connie’s historical romance and in my other e-reader, I will be reading another one of her works entitled “The Songbird’s Seduction”

Brownies and coffee (here with a little milk) is also featured in my other IG account with the current ebook that I’m reading.

The Little Things

Happiness is enjoying the little things in life: a smile, a pat on the back, a little breeze to help cool you down for just a minute, a warm sunshine after days of rain, a glass of cool water to ease a parched throat or a little weed flower that grew amidst the overgrown front yard grass.

These little things, compared to the grand scheme of life, are often unappreciated and unnoticed but when we look back, we realize that these made us feel more loved, more alive, more appreciative and more joyful.

Sound of the Waves

The Wave Song

The sounds that the waves make are like a rhythm that brings peace to one who is craving for an escape from life’s complexities. It’s like music to the ears that soothes the hurts and pains that the heart feels with the constant ebb and flow that creates a pattern of constancy and reliable expectations.
